Asthma treatment is incredibly important, so you need to feel confident that the provider you choose knows what they’re doing.

What Are the Symptoms of an Asthma Attack?

Asthma is characterized by the swelling and narrowing of the airways, which makes it difficult to breathe. In addition to shortness of breath, someone with asthma may experience:

  • Chest pain
  • A feeling of tightness within the chest
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing when exhaling
  • Difficulty speaking

Symptoms like these can make it hard to sleep, which can in turn lead to fatigue. It’s important to note that asthma symptoms can vary from one person to another, and that they may worsen when someone is exposed to certain triggers (causes of asthma attacks).

Symptoms Requiring Emergency Treatment

Certain asthma symptoms are life-threatening and require emergency treatment. You should call 911 or get to a nearby hospital if:

  • You haven’t been performing any strenuous physical activities but are still experiencing shortness of breath
  • Your shortness of breath or wheezing is quickly getting worse
  • You’ve used a quick-relief inhaler but your symptoms still haven’t improved

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
